Medical Micropigmentation is a specialised treatment to camouflage scars and vitiligo.
We can help improve the appearance and irregular texture of scarring and help clients to regain confidence.
Using a customised blend of colours and the highest-quality equipment, pigment is carefully infused into the skin to gently disguise and blend the scar tissue with normal skin. For best results scars must be at least one year old, not show redness, be paler than the surrounding skin and not noticeably sunken.

Clients who have experienced breast cancer and mastectomy are often concerned by scarring. We also have treatment solutions for scars left after breast reconstruction surgery, breast reduction or uplift surgery. Combining our artistic knowledge with latest techniques we can also improve the areola irregularities, improving breast shape and symmetry and by re-pigmenting the areola if the colour has been lost.
